Hi, so I was looking for some new lenses and am curently looking to buy a 15mm fisheye f2.8 on amazon for $615 but it says discontinued by manufacturor. Dose this mean that canon stopped making this product and if so should i not buy this lense or would it be ok to buy please let me know.

Canon currently only makes the EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM lens.  Seen here:

They previously made an EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye but that lens is discontinued (here's a link to it's old product page):

As it is discontinued, I'm wondering if you were looking at a "used" lens.  The lens was a Canon EOS lens and would be compatible with all Canon EOS cameras.

So if you want/need a fisheye, offer them $205 (a third of what they asked) and, of course, insist on free shipping. Maybe you'll get lucky.

The EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM lens is one fun lens!  Let me tell you it is a real pleasure to use.  It is limited only by your imagination.  It works well and any size sensor APS-C, APS-H, or FF.
